The wildflowers are starting to bloom along the Buttermilk Bend trail by Bridgeport, South Yuba River. The docent led walks start today, Saturday, March 16th at 11am and continue every Saturday and Sunday through May 19th. The 2 mile walk along the South Yuba River is a great way to experience the beauty and magic of the river. Bring your camera and look for a variety of California wildflowers including Golden Poppies, Purple Lupine, White Daisy’s, Western Buttercup, Larkspur and Shooting Stars. The Western Redbud are in full color right now, while the poppies are out, but not quite covering the hillside. The docent led hikes are $3, and please remember there’s now a $5 parking fee at Bridgeport. Spring has definitely arrived in Nevada City!
